Do you really want to make change?
« on: June 03, 2011, 01:08:53 AM »
Hey activists out there!!! ;)

I am currently volunteering for a NGO by the name of International Institute for Social Entrepreneurs in Kerala, India... and helping to spread the word

We are looking for people who are really serious about changing something and want to set up their own social project!

The International Institute for Social Entrepreneurs (IISE) is a dream-factory where participants from all over the world share visions and acquire all necessary skills to create social change.

The IISE welcomes participants, all over 22 years of age, whom have overcome significant life challenges ranging from vision impairment, disability, poverty, war, discrimination and exploitation. Most of them have personally experienced adversity or witnessed a particular situation that they wish to change so others do not suffer. They have a passion to make the world a better place and the strength to be forces of good rather than victims of circumstance.

The IISE does not select its participants according to pre-education/degrees.
What we are looking for are motivated and dedicated individuals who have the potential to start and run a social project.
For those who are selected, the IISE offers an 11 months high profile and unique leadership course. This course is conducted by international experts who help the participants to develop all necessary skills to succeed as social innovators.

The 2012 course will take place from Mid January 2012 till mid December 2012.

Also make sure to take a look at our website (bwb-iise.org) to see what our former participants are achieving right now

In case you have any questions, I'll be here ;D

I have a question: What does this have to do with AIDS activism? Also: Where is HIV/AIDS mentioned on your website? Your forums were blocked my my work for Spyware/Malware.

Hello... and thanks for that question!

This year we have for example a participant Nosisa from Zimbabwean who is working on a project for the rights of people with HIV and AIDS in society. Many of her family members have HIV and she wants to share her experience. There are some organizations in Zimbabwean which are helping people with HIV and AIDS but the churches are still very quiet about that topic - she wants to involve them and wake them up for the facts and support.

She's a very good example for the kind of people we are looking for - motivated change makers!

Hope this helps you - and if you know anyone who could use this opportunity, help us by spreading the word  :)

Best Regards,
